    Hey thanks in advance and for your time reading this.

    Well heres my problem, and Im unsure of what is wrong.
    Starting from the top, after I hit the power button on the start up screen I first get thick blue lines across the screen, then it turns into a fuzzy screen during memory check. After that it changes into sets of 3 thin white lines (during HD and CD rom detection), I then get a fuzzy windows picture and the load bar. Then it just hits a blank screen, after about 15 - 20 mins I hear the windows start up sound and it remains blank. I dont think windows did fully start up because I dont hear the ICQ starting sound. Also while Im getting all the fuzzy screen and lines stuff the background is the same as the normal start up.

    Ive check the monitor (used it on another comp) and it works fine. Ive tried plugging both my hard drives and starting up, its still the same. Also the blue lines/ fuzzy screen / white lines are not appearing randomly its the same sequence every time i start up. Theres also a fan(its either cpu vid card or psu) that is higher pitched than it is normally so Im thinking some hardware burnt. It would be really great if someone could tell me whats wrong, and possibly what hardware Im looking at that needs to be replaced. Thanks again

    um what operating system are you using and what are some of your hardware specs (like vid card and cpu, motherboard??)? also do you know how to get into the bios and check your temps?
